FIFTEENTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR 2014

Sea Sunday

Every time we open the Bible and ponder the scriptures, the Word of God feeds our minds and hearts.  If we receive that Word in faith, God will transform the way we think and live.  That is the message in today’s readings.

The prophet Isaiah compares the word of God to rain and snow that softens the earth and makes the seed hidden in it bring forth life.  In the same way, the word we hear can touch our hearts and bring them new life. (Isaiah 55:10-11)

In the gospel passage Jesus invites his listeners to consider how someone sowing seed casts it generously in the hope that it will take root wherever it falls.  In the same way, the word he speaks will take root in the attentive and listening heart.
